The Power of Purple!

Sensationally spicy and officially unorthodox. Just a swipe of lip colours from the purple hue spectrum adds extra sass to any makeup look. Here’s how to rock this bold shade every single time.

In the mood for something bold? Let purple take the centre stage. Listing a bunch of lipsticks to help you out the comfort zone and making sure your purple experiment is a super hit. Pucker up and get ready to have purple lipstick on your side. Laters, reds and pink! 

Keep the Base Clean

Here’s a way you can always hit the mark with a purple lipstick – spotless base. When opting for such an audacious shade, let it shine and go easy on the rest of your face makeup. When you create a flawless base, you ensure all the focus stays on your lips.

Double the Jewels

Pair a vibrant purple with statement jewellery to amplify every look. Pick your favourite pair of earrings, necklace or choker and swipe on a fun purple lippy. A vibrant purple along with some heavy jewellery will radiate boss energy nobody’s ever thought of.

The Classic Wing

Who says red lipstick is best paired with rich, black eyeliner? A great black eyeliner compliments every lipstick shade and takes the look to the next level. Make your purple pout more intense with a sharp line on your top lash line. Let the liner and lipstick be in the spotlight and keep the rest of your makeup neutral and muted.

Blush Up

Get into the winter, vampy mood by rocking your purple lip with some rosy cheeks. Add the right amount of colour to your cheeks and watch your look transform. Feel free to go bright with your blusher but make sure it’s inclined towards cooler tones so it doesn’t clash with the purple lip. The eyes can stay neutral for this one or you can swipe on the same blush all over your lids.

Play the Contrast

People with amber-brown eyes, make purple lipstick your go-to asap. The contrast of purple and amber/orange in your eyes will make your eyes stand out like nothing before. Playing with the opposite spectrum of the colour wheel to make your eyes shine does not limit to just eye makeup. So swipe on this gorgeous, bold hue and rock it with confidence.

Go Bright

While deep, wine, mulberry shades are safe when experimenting with purple, give the light, lilac tones a go. Lavender, lilac, violets look intimidating but can look absolutely stunning when done right. This can also be paired with blushed cheeks and spotless glossy skin for best impact. And adding a fierce wing will add 5 stars to this look!

Strong as Metal

This shade screams “go bold or go home”. A metallic, deep purple shade that looks fabulous on everybody! This shade brings in the power, depth and intensity like never before. The only thing you need with this striking lip shade is a beaming highlighter on the inner corner of your eyes and some va-va-voom lashes.
